Liverpool FC today announced that Reds legend Robbie Fowler is returning to Liverpool as a Club Ambassador.
Fans favourite Fowler joined the club’s Academy when he was nine years old. He made his first team debut at the age of 18 and played for Liverpool’s first team for nine years before he left and re-joined for eighteen months in 2006.
His duties as a Club Ambassador include attending matches, working with commercial partners, supporting Club-wide initiatives and working with the Academy as a mentor.
“Liverpool has been a massive part of my life for 30 years now. It’s been an honour to play for this Club and it’s even more of a privilege to be asked to be an ambassador” said Robbie Fowler.
“I’m looking forward to representing this great Club and will do all I can to support success both on and off the pitch” he added.
